U.S. Naval Academy Class of '67


April 2018

There is one big item remaining on our near-term Class agenda: wrapping up our ongoing 50th Anniversary Class Gift of $2,692,895. Keep those pledge payments coming.

We have completed the last “Another Link in the Chain” (ALITC) events – with the delayed graduations of the final members of the Class of 2017. With these graduation ceremonies, our official duties are complete and our relationship with ’17 has entered the new phase of “alumni-to-alumni.” Once again, many thanks to Jack Parry for his Chairmanship of the ALITC program and to the many classmates who joined in one or more of the ALITC events over the past 4 years.

We still have a few copies of our outstanding ’67 50th Anniversary Book. They, and a few reunion tote bags, are still available for purchase in the Class Store.

Again, thank you to our editor-in-chief Ed Mills (our original 1967 Lucky Bag editor), Ed Kerins, Tony Wayne, Pete Smullen, Dick Glasow, Jack Macidull and Rich Mies for taking on this momentous, and record setting production. The treasure trove of individual, personal reflections and photos as well as the Class history are serving as a wonderful resource.

In fall of 2018 we will cheerfully welcome many out-of-town classmates and families to the ’67 Village tailgate at Navy home football games. We’ve posted a “Rules of the Road” link on the Calendar for our tailgates and a graphic of the location just outside Gate D on the Blue (Brigade) side of the stadium for future attendees. Put down 2018 as a year to join us in Annapolis as Navy enters its fifth year as a football member of the American Athletic Conference. Kick-off times may vary again this so stay tuned.

Away & Bowl football games continue to be wonderful opportunities for “local” classmates, and those coming in for the game, to get together at either/both a Class event and the BIG Navy pre-game tailgate. We put out this information closer to the football season commencement. Two big games away from Annapolis are Navy-Hawai’i in Honolulu on September 1st and Navy-Notre Dame in San Diego, CA on October 27th.

The Navy-Notre Dame game mini-reunion weekend is now planned. We have almost 100 classmates indicating they will be in attendance. The registration page for the reunion will be published soon. Don’t miss this outstanding opportunity to be in San Diego, gather with Classmates, and see us knock off Notre Dame again. See the calendar here on the website for the link. Many thanks to Pete Phelps (chairman), Steve Halupa and the ’67 “Legends in Their Own Minds” group of San Diego for spearheading this event. It is going to be a singular mini-reunion!

The Annapolis area ’67 Golf Outing (19th) will be on 9 June 2018 at the Navy golf course. See the calendar here for the details. Alan Davey again is the driving (pun intended) force. Dust off those clubs and join us.

You need to be on the Class Facebook Page and watch for class-wide emails for details.

We need to stay über-organized as a class and keep our role and reputation as a leader and integral part of our greater alumni body. We need to do our part to ensure USNA continues to be, now and in the future, the national treasure it is. Your officers can lead the Class much more effectively if we are all members of the Alumni Association. We use the Association’s considerable and robust database for all class communications, reunion services, and IT support services. Please ensure your profile is current on www.usna.com (click at “My Account”).

Again, our Class Facebook page where we, over 450 classmates and spouses, are gathering many of our Class & family photos, videos, and news! (No politics, no over the edge humor or controversial topics – just “family” material).

I ask all of you to consider keeping your USNA charitable gifts coming to the USNA Foundation over the next years, while strongly considering staying, or becoming, at a minimum, an annual Presidents Circle member. I also encourage all to consider the Planned Giving Program at the USNA Foundation and becoming a member of Robert Means Thompson Society. https://www.usna.com/WaysToGive

We alumni need to do our part in ensuring that USNA remains the premier leadership institution in the land.

I again want to thank Wayne Savage (VP), Jim McNeece (Scribe), Jack Parry (Treasurer), Dick Meade (Web and Database Guru (“Dick of the Database” - DOTDB), and Steve Phillips (‘67 Store Manager) for their service.

Be involved, and be in contact, often!

Go ’67!
